Roche’s Feeds – Feeds to Nourish a Lifetime Performance.

The concept of nutrition for life is key to the new line of dairy and beef feeds being formulated and developed by Roche’s Feeds. We have embraced in this the longevity for the animal, animal health and welfare and the fact that correct nutrition tailored for the stage of life of the animal aids health, reduces stress and antibiotic usage on farm animals. We are using the very latest scientific developments in additives to minimise the risk of pathogenic diseases and metabolic diseases to animals through appropriate use of essential oils, yeasts and beta-glucans, buffers, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
